thank you for your help!
did you need to provide proof of your wife's ties to her home country (like leave letter from work ,assets..etc ) to convince them that she will return before visitor visa expires ?
I didn't submit any such documents.

Write an email to the biometric centre, the automatic response they give you will state that they are closed. Respond to the email from immigration and attach the response. Then State that as soon as the center reopens you wil submit the results.

Hi there

I had the same issue but didn't need to submit biometrics and they granted the visa without it. I think you would have to get the health examinations done.

I suggest you wait for atleast a week and then if there still isnt any decision made on your application, contact the Department of Immigration and explain the situation. I am pretty sure they are happy to help in the given circumstance.

Best of luck!

Hey guys, I hope someone here can give me some advice or guidance regarding offshore partner visas.

Quick background. I am an Australian citizen currently living in London. I have been with my girlfriend (British citizen) for almost 3 years now. We are looking to move over next year and have realised there may be a few options available with varying timelines.

I see we can apply for the offshore partner visa, which can take up to 13 months to be approved. However is it at all possible that she uses the working visa (she will be under 30 y/o still next year), and then apply for the onshore one there and get the bridging visa until the partner visa is approved? Has anyone done this?

Just weighing up my options before speaking with a immigration specialist/lawyer.

Any help or advice on what not to do would be incredible.

Thanks in advance!

Ricky.

View attachment 2547 [] View attachment 2545 what are required of me on this please kind reply.
Am not living with my wife now
Not sure what you're asking.

Are you not living with your wife and you want to know where to upload that evidence?
I mean do I need to upload them when am in Nigeria while my wife in Australia??
Yes to upload you don't need to be in Australia.
So gather the documents that are applicable to you first. But don't press the I confirm I have submitted the documents button untill you do your medical. Instead reply to the case officer and inform them the challenge you are facing.

Last month it was -

75% of applications: 13 months
90% of applications: 17 months

I don't think it's a big difference tbh.
Especially when the numbers of visas being granted seems to be so low, compared to pre COVID.

There might be quite a number of applications that will be kept waiting longer until the visa grants go back to normal.
